Symptoms of Osteoporosis
Osteoporosis does not show any symptoms or pain in the early stages.
But once the condition has developed and the bones become weak, several symptoms may be noticed. Symptoms may include neck pain, height loss, back pain, and stooped posture. Bone pain or tenderness and fractures of hip, wrist, vertebrae, and other bones may also occur.
One of the serious risks of osteoporosis is that the bones become so weakened that they begin to compress or collapse. Fractures due to compression can be severely painful and they require a long time for recovery. Multiple fractures due to compression can result in loss of height and stooped posture.
